About Me

Laura McPherson Profile

Professionally, prior to becoming a freelancer, I worked in and with numerous call centers (including retail, correctional facilities, and finance); as a CDL-A certified truck driver for the Coca-Cola Company; and as an operations manager/supervisor for Inland Real Estate Investment Corporation, one of the largest real estate investment companies in America. This well-rounded approach has served me well as a freelance writer, helping me build skills and knowledge in direct training and education, HR and management, finance and real estate, and logistics. To read more about my professional background, please connect with me on LinkedIn.

As far as my educational background, I studied English and Humanities at Northern Illinois University followed by Career and Technical Education at Eastern New Mexico University. Between my education and professional development I have an exceptionally strong foundation in the English language and linguistics paired with deep skills in education, training, and teaching that translate well to freelance.

My home office is located in Chicago; if you’re a prospective local client looking to hire a Chicago based freelancer, I’d love to meet you! Of course, I work with clients across the US and internationally as well and am happy to set up a phone or video consultation.
